PostRe: Forza Horizon 3 (XB1/Win10) - Blizzard Mountain expansion out 13th Dec (p15)
by Trelliz » Mon Dec 12, 2016 10:03 am

i got the ultimate edition because i was going to get the vip and car pass anyway so it worked out cheaper in the long run. They've been like this for a while with expansions being not part of the full package however I think they're all totally worth it, but they could be a bit clearer about these things.

+2.9Gb update.

The expansion pass is $35 and the Blizzard mountain is $20. The expansion pass gives you 2 DLC at a "discounted price". Do you get the blizzard mountain DLC free with the expansion pass?

Yes - Blizzard Mountain is one of the expansions in the pass so you get access to it when you buy it so it's not technically "free" but part of the thing you've bought.

+ 3.66Gb. You have to goto manage game and install blizzard mountain separately. Not intuitive and totally hidden. Poor show.

The race "feats" for extra stars is a good idea. This mechanic should be build upon.

Definitely - I hope they add them to the main game as an extra layer of things to do once you've done the exhibition/championships.

I've just made a race blueprint which is an uphill blizzard race at night where the only cars allowed are the little bmw bubble car, the reliant robin and the morgan, called "The Worst Rally Ever".

There had been rumours of that for a while but its good to see it finally confirmed - i guess EA continuing to strawberry float up need for speed meant it wasn't worth it for them to not be in all the other racing games anymore. No more exposure for RUF as a stand-in instead then.

I got to the end of the Blizzard Mountain campaign last night - I quite like the star system as a more tangible progress metric: you get one for just doing an event, two for winning and 3 for winning and doing something else - getting a certain skill score, doing a certain number of drifts etc. You need 100 to get to the final race but then there are 60 more and each event has championship mode too, so there's still plenty to do as well as getting the last stars. I hope they add that system into the main game as an extra layer of completion as normally you don't really have to win to progress, just turn up and run the events. Putting these in would give more incentive to do well. While they're at it why not do a new version of the 1000 club from the first game.

160 stars, 27 championships done, damn that was a great expansion!
Justa shame the "And long may they reign" achievement is glitched!!

My only real gripe with the expansion is that the blizzards come along in free roam a bit too frequently.

For anyone that has the PC version, don't download the latest update as it will download the developer build of the game (53GB) instead of the latest patch. If you download it you won't be able to play the game. :slol: :fp:

Porsche and Microsoft Announce Multi-Project Partnership for Industry-Leading Forza Franchise

We’re thrilled to share that today at the New York International Auto Show, Porsche and Microsoft’s Turn 10 Studios announced a six-year partnership to collaborate on a suite of co-branded initiatives for Porsche and the Forza franchise. The partnership kicks off today with open registration for Porsche’s esports sponsorship debut in Forza Racing Championship Season 3: The Porsche Cup – the most inclusive racing esports program and home to the largest online racing community in gaming. Today also brings the release of the Forza Horizon 3 Porsche Car Pack, featuring an exciting lineup of Porsche cars for 2016’s best-selling racing game Forza Horizon 3, exclusively on Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs.

We entered this premium partnership with Porsche as a result of their shared passion for sports cars and motorsport. Porsche has a rich history of motorsport which combined with Turn 10’s unrivaled position in digital racing entertainment has formed the basis for a new and exciting form of seamlessly integrated racing entertainment. The partners are working to develop and launch new ways to combine driving experiences, racing schools, and dominant motorsport successes with Forza’s regular cadence of high-quality game experiences, content, and events. Our six-year partnership is starting off strong with ForzaRC, and we can’t wait to show everyone what else we have planned.

“By having Microsoft as our partner, we have the opportunity to take the pleasure of driving a Porsche and making it an experience in the virtual world”, says Detlev von Platen, Member of the Executive Board responsible for Sales and Marketing at Porsche AG. “Racing games and esports connect the real and virtual worlds and enable us to gain further access to the young target group. It means that they can develop a passion for Porsche even before buying their first sports car”.

The Forza franchise is home to the largest online racing community in gaming – in fact, over four million players race in Forza each month. As the most inclusive racing competition in gaming, ForzaRC is an esports program where players of all skill levels compete for glory. Building on the success of ForzaRC’s debut with two seasons in 2016, which drew nearly one billion impressions, fans can now register for Forza Racing Championship Season 3: The Porsche Cup, which begins May 1.

Kicking off ForzaRC this year is the Forza Racing Championship 2017 New York Invitational Presented by Porsche on April 15-16 at Microsoft’s flagship store on Fifth Avenue, showcasing 18 of ForzaRC’s Elite players from around the world competing for a chance to win $25,000 in cash prizes, plus a Drift competition between two of ForzaRC’s top drifters. Guests will also have a chance to race ForzaRC Elite drivers and even Porsche professional driver Matt Campbell on April 15. We also invite fans to join us from home by tuning into the Beam livestream, Twitch and YouTube, featuring a guest appearance by Campbell.

The New York Invitational is just the beginning for ForzaRC in 2017. Following the Invitational, Season 3 players can participate in two different competitions in Forza Motorsport 6 for Elite drivers and Forza Horizon 3 for casual players. Players will get the chance to race in a wide variety of Porsche models over four weeks of intense competition, culminating in a finals event at a special location, where winners will take home $100,000 in cash prizes.

We look forward to collaborating with Porsche to continue delivering more content and ForzaRC experiences for our fans, so stay tuned to ForzaMotorsport.net for future updates.

Porsche Car Pack for Forza Horizon 3

Also available today, the Forza Horizon 3 Porsche Car Pack adds seven acclaimed Porsche vehicles to the open world of Australia’s Horizon Festival, including cars new to Forza and making their debut on this console generation. With this car pack, players can experience prime examples of the breadth and depth of Porsche’s automotive history from classic racing models like the 1960 718 RS 60 to modern-day vehicles like the 2016 911 GT3 RS, the 2016 Cayman GT4, the recently launched 2017 Panamera, and more. Head over to ForzaMotorsport.net for more details on each of the cars featured in the pack.
